National Word Day

On Wednesday, words were celebrated in all their glory for National Word Day 2018! Across the school, children explored different words linked in with their current learning. Through a wide variety of activities, such as, poetry, riddles, Boggle and word clouds, they were able to apply their new learning to support their progress in reading, writing, spelling and in other subjects. Some children even explored the Latin translation of their word to find the origin. During break and lunchtimes, children had the opportunity to practise writing their word on the yard in chalk and share their favourite and least favourite words on a word wall in the corridor. Ask your children about the new words that they have been learning.
